Coot Master: hes piece of crap

Melissa counts: and Columbus was nothing more than a spoiled teenage brat got lost after he stole Mommy and daddy ship.. found his way back home. told of a beautiful island he discovered.. so they sent him back began savagely taking what was not HIS, found different ways of killing of the INDIGENOUS, small pox, measles mumps and rubella a few other sicknesses, why the hell they don't teach the right shit! fucking thanks giving !! who wants to celebrate such a BLOOD filled event! physcopaths do that and keep trophies or is that how he was I'm just saying a few wacicus were loony, Lincoln , Franklin these are only a couple people who others have said they were schizophrenic bypolor, but that's what made good ol USA! :)

Melissa counts: they celebrate things like this to cover the genocides and Call it a triumph or a special day... turtle island is the land of my ancestors and my offspring and the future generations.. blue collar And suits are killing the land's and the farmers are busting ass.. what kinda plant needs computers, electronic or cars.. just saying, my opinion and everyone has one, but remember yours stinks too...
aho... ndn BLOOD, proud I can say my roots are really from turtle ISLAND! métise ABORIGINAL, INDIGENOUS

DarkZerepniconStudios: Fuck you, redman!
ITALIAN POWER!!!

Kmf117: All hail Columbus

Dick Ontheroad: all he did was take our native land and clamed it as white land

Purple Longhorn: 2006 Spanish Italian and German governments looked into Columbus family. Turns out he is Spanish NOT Italian !

linn491: He was a genocidal freak show and a lunatic, he was never a hero.

cobra: I'm Italian myself but I always seen to Columbus Day like a sort of an useless and sciovinist parade full of ignorants people. Certainly, I'm not blaming Columbus, he was just an explorer who worked for spanish crown, that then killed millions of indios! And then why italian flags? Italy did not even exist at that times.

Sam Vascas: I agree I have to write an essay on if we should have Columbus Day even though Amerigo Vaspucci is who American is named anther. The holiday should be Amerigo Vaspucci day he found out the world was round and that Christopher Columbus hit the Caribbean and never set foot on the mainland of America!!!!!!!!!

WhiteShadow691: there are no jews in spain

WhiteShadow691: says the arogant zenophobe

WhiteShadow691: russians put people in space before the us did, and the airplane was invented by the french

WhiteShadow691: what you said was extremly racist and ignorant, there are no jewish people in spain

WhiteShadow691: what you just said was the most stupidest thing I have ever heard, everyone has just gotten dumber from listening to it, I reward you no points, and have the Invisable Pink Unicorn have mercy on your soul

Softly Whispers: Give me a break, Columbus was a RAPIST, and SLAVE traitor. He killed off many of the Native Indians and used their land to profit $. Nothing great about that asshole and thank God many of us know the truth because we actually educated ourselves. You should try it sometime! BTW how the fuck do you "discover" land that was already taken by someone else? "Oh look I discovered your car, its mine now!"

Erik Charles: ironic- we know Columbus screwed up all the native peoples he saw in the "New World" yet the Americans who came afterwards finished the job in the continental US (the Indians)

iKhanKing: Chris Columbus shouldn't be celebrated. He had almost nothing to be honored. He didn't even discover the "new world" that was the vikings. Groundhog day is actually MORE important because it is widely known to just be a "fun" thing. It's not associated with anything important, like Santa. Columbus day is just perpetuating one of the most inaccurate myths in history

Sunant kaz: We celebrate Columbus day because the arrival of the Europeans gave birth to a new race, with the colonization, not only europeans came to america, so did Asians, Arabs, Africans. Thats why we, most latin Americans are descendent of all those races, without the arrival of europeans we wouldnt exist. Even when we know what the europeans did, WE CAN NOT HELP HAVING THEIR BLOOD in our veins. we have the blood of the natives, asians, arabs, blacks, whites. thats why we celebrate the racial fusion.
